The new Magico A5 is a flagship A-Series model (3 way / 5 driver design) which incorporates the company’s first 5-inch pure midrange driver as well as enhanced midrange and bass driver cone technology.

These new advanced cones achieve unprecedented stiffness-to-weight ratio, a key parameter that Magico has pursued over the past 15 years.

The massive, sealed enclosure of the A5 is formed entirely of 6061-T6 aircraft grade aluminum, the same material and construction methods as in Magico’s acclaimed Q-Series.

Complex internal bracing helps stiffen the entire enclosure and minimise unwanted resonances and colorations, allowing all drivers to perform with stunning resolution and dynamics.

The A5 is finished in an elegant brushed black anodised aluminum with grilles available separately as an option at £950.00

“The A Series has been a great success in reaching a wider audience,” says Magico’s founder, Alon Wolf.

“The A5 builds on that success with a new 5-inch midrange of extraordinary musicality. And the A5 ‘plays larger,’ with powerfully extended dynamic range.”

The 9” bass drivers in the A5 feature a newly enhanced version of Magico’s Graphene Nano-Tech cones. Graphene, a hexagonal lattice of carbon and in relation to its thickness, it is about 100 times stronger than the strongest high-carbon steel.

The new cone design combines Graphene layered carbon fiber with advanced new core materials to achieve the highest possible stiffness to weight ratio.

Extensive computer simulation and prototype testing allows engineering to create the driver chassis frame with an ideal combination of stiffness and damping, with minimal acoustical contribution and maximized airflow.

The new bass driver incorporates oversised components including a 5-inch pure Titanium voice coil and huge copper cap with ½” of linear excursion.

The super-stabilised magnetic field enables the A5 to output thundering levels of bass, producing 115 dB SPL (@ 50 Hz, 1 meter), while maintaining very low distortion and inductance below 0.18 mH.

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) provides Magico engineers a single platform to assess acoustical, mechanical, electromagnetic and thermal properties.

This meticulous testing helps minimise distortions in the frequency and time domains.

The new 5-inch full-cone midrange driver enables wider dispersion and greater midrange transparency.

Like the bass driver, the midrange also incorporates an advanced Graphene carbon fiber sandwich cone.

A new foam surround helps achieve ideal cone/surround integration, faster settling time and impressively low distortion.

The all-new motor system features a pure Titanium voice coil that operates in a super-stabilised magnetic field with a pure copper pole cap to minimise eddy currents and maximise efficiency.

This latest midrange driver design truly sets a new benchmark of measured performance.

A dedicated sub-enclosure houses the midrange driver, protecting it from the extensive back wave energy of the bass drivers.

The tweeter dome is based on the fundamental design platform and geometry of the M-Series tweeters and shared with the other A-Series models; the tweeter incorporates a pure beryllium-diaphragm with an optimized 28-mm dome.

Magico encases the customised neodymium motor system in an engineered back chamber with the company’s most advanced damping materials.

This enables ultra-low distortion, high power handling, massive dynamic capabilities and extended linear voice coil movement.

The A5 will be the first product in the world to offer Mundorf’s new M-Resist Ultra foil resistors.

Now perfected after years of development, the new resistors deliver greater power handling, transparency and liquidity.

The Elliptical Symmetry Crossover topology acoustically integrates all five drivers using a full complement of state-of-the-art components from Mundorf EB Gmbh of Cologne, Germany.

The 3-way network features a 24 dB per octave Linkwitz-Riley filter that maximizes frequency bandwidth while preserving phase linearity and minimising intermodulation distortion.

Magico

Located in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area of Northern California.

The new 30,000 square foot state-of-the-art campus in Hayward, CA.

Magico employs highly trained craftsmen, technicians and machinists.

These employees are highly specialised and dedicated to their specific craft, allowing them the capabilities of translating ideas and concepts into designs as well as fabricating prototypes, and manufacturing the whole product without outsourcing.

The assembly area within the new campus.

A considerably larger area with better work station layout dramatically improves work flow. Coupled with modern infrastructure, this optimises efficiency and improves quality control of all their products.

Resonances in the body of a musical instrument are an essential part of defining its nature and quality.

The opposite is true of a loudspeaker.

Cabinet panel resonances are a significant cause of sound coloration.

Heavy bracing of a typical MDF enclosure can help reduce enclosure flex but at the cost of increased energy storage and damping factor.

Although a welcome attribute for midrange outout, over damping is detrimental to bass performance (high energy storage, low wide Q and low resonances).

MAGICO has spent many years developing an enclosure system that successfully balances the 3 elements that constitute a proper loudspeaker enclosure: stiffness, mass, and internal damping.

Having pioneered the use of aluminum in loudspeakers design.

They built their first aluminum enclosure back in 1994 and have never looked back.

Extremely stiff yet easy to damp, a properly designed aluminum enclosure is the ideal platform for high-performance loudspeakers.

So inert, the enclosures have no discernible coloration of their own-allowing the drivers to operate with the utmost clarity and dynamics.

Though costly to implement, the use of aluminum in their enclosures plays a vital role in design philosophy.
